I’m also working on a bunch of 4K Ultra HD reviews, which I’ll start posting soon. I’m actually going to a 4K UHD press event tomorrow that I’ll have more to say about on Friday.
In announcement news, Lionsgate is releasing the animated Marvel’s Thor: Tales of Asgard on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/10. The company is also releasing Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Amores Perros on Blu-ray that same day. And they’ve set 47 Meters Down for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 9/26.
Universal has set The Book of Henry for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/3.
The Brain Factory will release the Haunters: The Art of the Scare documentary on Blu-ray on 10/3 as well.
Arrow Video is following up their forthcoming Re-Animator: Limited Edition Blu-ray (due on 8/8) by re-issuing their excellent Bride of Re-Animator: Limited Edition Blu-ray on 9/26 in Steelbook packaging.
Speaking of Steelbooks, Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing Flatliners in that packaging on 9/26.
Also, we need to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of a few stage and screen legends in the last few days, including the acclaimed playwright and actor Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, Days of Heaven), actress Jeanne Moreau (Jules and Jim, Diary of a Chambermaid), actor Leonard Landy (Our Gang), pioneering Disney Imagineer Marty Sklar (one of the original architects of Disneyland), and voice actress June Foray (voice of Natasha and Rocky the Flying Squirrel from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, Cindy Lou Who from How the Grinch Stole Christmas and more). All will be missed.
Back with more soon. Stay tuned…
